Just tried using the Modern (Windows 10) Icon set and seeing a few missing icons in both PowerArchiver Burner and PowerArchiver Encryption screens . They are all there in the Minimalistik icon set and the only difference I can see is the former is blue and the latter grey. In version 22.00.9
there were some security issues fixed in 7zip:
As it seems, that PowerArchiver and PACL use the 7zip libraries, could you please update them to the latest version?
I noticed that the version of ZPAQ used is older than the latest released 7.15 https://mattmahoney.net/dc/zpaq.html also there seems to be a newer fork that adds several features https://github.com/fcorbelli/zpaqfranz
It would be useful to implement this latest version (it also maintains the same syntax and behavior as the latest official release if used the -715 flag) and add when opening a zpaq file a choice of the version of the files to show (e.g. as dummy folders represented the various versions present). Since any previous changes are stored with this format, it is possible to extract a snapshot of a certain date/version.
If I open a password-protected zipper file (created with WinRAR but I think that’s irrelevant), open it with PowerArchiver and run “Remove Encryption” on the same file, then reopen it and add a password with “Encrypt Archive,” the resulting archive will be protected with the old ZipCrypto algorithm and not AES as indicated.
(this can be verified, for example, by trying to open the archive files with Windows Explorer, which does not support the AES algorithm)
PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
Decode incomplete RARs?
I bought PA2007 a few days ago. Great program. Long-time WinRAR user. Love PA so far, but have a question.
When downloading a large video file, say about 700MB total, divided into about 48 15MB sections, you can download just the first section (or first few sections), then decode this/these sections with the WinRAR “Keep broken files” option checked, and then you can play that first portion of the video to check the quality and see if the rest is worth downloading. With PA I have not been able to do this; it appears to bail out if the entire archive is not present. Can’t find anything in the Help file. Is it possible to do this with PA, and if so, how?
it is not possible right now… I am not sure if we can do it with unrar.dll, we will check it out for one of the future releases…
That’s OK; on the rare occasion that I need to do that I can use the old-fashioned way.
And thanks for the reply. A responsive forum is one thing I look for when deciding whether or not to buy a program. You guys are doing a good job.
